The integration of the Einstein-Maxwell equations for an anisotropic charged fluid sphere acting as a source of the Reissner-Nordström metric is considered, under the assumption of a conformally flat interior metric. The solutions asymptotically tend to static configurations. In the isotropic pressure limiting case, the non-static solutions are found to be incompatible with charged models.
